the people's lives in the united states of america. the tea baggers are protesters -- or tea party yers, rather, are protesting about government seizing a huge chunk of the american economy and imposing near dictatorial controls. and by the way, i don't think the death panel thing is quite as far-fetched as a lot of commentators are saying. when the exchanges are put in, when the insurance exchanges are put in in states, that is going to allow a certain kind of almost death panel-like chrome by bureaucrats. so i don't think president clinton is on the right track here, although i do admire him a lot in terms of his taste in women in arkansas, but i do not think that he's barking up the right tree here. neil: now, now, now, now. adam, one of the issues i want to raise with you, again, regardless of what he said about tea partiers and all, is his thinking and is the democratic leadership's thinking, look, we don't want to run into the bus that we ran into surg the during when we would go home for a break when we had all these town hall protesters, we don't want that. so the better part of
in the united states shows that we are still in a very tough environment. that seems like an understatement when you factor in these under employed that we were talking about just a minute ago. >> that's absolutely correct. we're experiencing a jobless recovery. g.d.p. is starting to increase again but not rapidly enough nor at the pace we would expect coming out of a recession to stop the job losses and then turn around the unemployment rate. it looks as though we're going to be above 10% throughout 2010, and it's going to be a very long time before we have a normal private sector job market. most of the stimulus money is creating federal bureaucracy jobs. rick: we saw some productivity numbers this past week. that were up. productivity is up. but this is not necessarily good news for folks out there who are looking for jobs. i was reading -- it doesn't really provide a lot of incentive for employers to hire new people when their productivity is on the way up with the fewer number of workers. >> we have a paradox in the united states. we have the most productive economy in the world and it's be
